Atlas House in Eindhoven, The Netherlands by MONADNOCK

 
April 13th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: MONADNOCK 

The Atlas House is situated on the edge of the city of Eindhoven, opposite a historic rural estate. The compact square building manifests itself as a tower. It is rotated 45 degrees relative to the street and is detached from the boundaries of the plot. All windows are grouped around the corners and at times allow for diagonal views through the volume. Internally, the rotation provides striking vistas along the edges of the forest. The depth of the façade openings reveals that the size and colour of the bricks is the same both inside and outside. These define the character of the raw and restrained interior. The external facades offer no clues about the playful offsets of the internal spaces. The interior reveals a collection of rooms of various heights and floor levels, each giving their respective window openings specific characteristics.

At the site of the original farmhouse from the late 19th century, in the village of Javornice in southern Bohemia, there is a new, partially reconstructed area Javorník distillery. Its owners, thanks to the neighboring farm, which has long been their property, could create a farm with all the necessary facilities. It is not only a newly built small fruit distillery, but also other reconstructed building like former pub with a dance hall, stables and a barn. New to the buildings there is a shop, fruit store, refrigerated fermentation plant, a customs warehouse basement, wood house, garage and there is accommodation for family members and guests. There is also an extensive orchard and garden as part of Javorník distillery. Homestead stands under the ruins of Helfenburk in the picturesque hills between the towns Bavorov and Vlachovo Brezi at an altitude of 480 m. The surroundings are mostly forests, grasslands and farm fields.

Hindmarsh Shire Council Corporate Offices in Victoria, Australia by k20 Architecture

Located in the rural setting of Nhill, Victoria, Hindmarsh Shire Council Corporate Offices is a technologically advanced Corporate Civic and Administration Centre with Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) principles at the core of the building’s design intent.

Completed in 2014 the precinct re-uses the existing 1960’s building and encapsulates it within its new contemporary built form. The building was inspired by the town’s identity as a hub of wheat production with steel storage silos and agricultural sheds dotting the landscape. The centre’s form and restrained material palette of timber, steel and glass gives subtle references to the local agricultural context; utilising the craftsmanship of the folded metal inherent in the silos in the form of locally sourced steel and zinc finishes along the building’s exterior.

Ginza Place, a major commercial development in Tokyo’s famous Ginza shopping district, occupies arguably the most prominent recent development site in Japan. Ginza’s reputation for elegance and sophistication has made it a center of Japanese culture and commerce for more than a century. Ginza Place completes the neighborhood’s central intersection by introducing a bold and well calculated facade to the streetscape.

Galeria Melissa in New York by Pascali Semerdjian Arquitetos

Article source: Pascali Semerdjian Arquitetos

When we visited the place where the Gallery would be located, we felt that the space provided a cozy distance from the pace of the city. We then drew a parallel with the older shelters in existence – the caves. It was based on this reflection that we developed the project. Designed in partnership with Edson Matsuo, Grendene’s design director, the Melissa Gallery was designed to harmonize with the concept of a shelter, of refuge in the middle of a megalopolis. Floor, wall and ceiling were built with the same finish to stress this impression, and the shoes are arranged in small increases in both wall and floor that evoke stalagmites – the cave formations that protrude from cave floors towards the ceiling.

Red Mirror Strips in Seoul, South Korea by MasilWIDE

Article source: MasilWIDE

In Yeoksam-dong 618-2, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, there is a two story building covered with layers of horizontal mirror strips and vertical red transparency strips. Overlapping transparency and reflection, these layered strips of different materials create a strong visual illusion. Walking along the narrow stair passage between the layers, the visitors may feel dizzy not only because of the optical repetition but because of the trembling of the strips. The stair passage links the ground level to the roof deck changing the ordinary views of typical commercial blocks in Seoul to a phenomenal experience.

Wow! Sta. in Chuo-ku Niigata, Japan by Takeru Shoji Architects Co., Ltd.

Wow! Sta. is situated in Horinouchi, in the Central Ward of Niigata City – an area where the city center gradually begins to give way to the suburbs. The scenery lining the nearby main road is dominated by large commercial and retail buildings and their accompanying signage.

The businesses, houses and multilevel apartments that sprawl out from Niigata Station constitute this typical inner-city area.

Located just one street back from the main road with its dazzling lights and the din of the traffic, we find an area that is surprisingly calm, unlit by even street lights.

G.Zanella Primary School Renovation and Extension in Villafranca ( VR), Italia by GDA officina di architettura

Article source: GDA officina di architettura 

The project area is located in the outskirts of Villafranca and Verona, between the urban core and the agricultural land.

The more distinctive presence is  the “strada della Rizza” around which is structured the small village Rizza,  that’s  a quite busy output axis of Verona.

The new building is designed as a reconstruction and expansion of a previously existing one  lying parallel to the “strada della Rizza”  and looks like an inhabited wall that protects the school from the nearby road. For this reason, it present a 3,5m high basement in concrete without any window that look like an infrastructure’s construction.

Carlo Pazolini Brompton in London, England by Giorgio Borruso Design

 
April 13th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Giorgio Borruso Design 

Carlo Pazolini, Brompton Rd is a 120 sqm space in Knightsbridge, London, housing men’s and women’s shoes and accessories. The design marks an evolution of the Carlo Pazolini worldwide store concept integrating specificities of site. Our design sought to recognize the memory of the adjacent 18th Century Brompton Arcade (now part of a retail store) by recreating a contemporary barrel vault ceiling as well as the illusion via a mirror wall that the space opens to the exterior at the back. An historical detail in the facade was used as a generative “seed” for the interior geometric language and led us to a pointed rather than semicircular barrel vault design. The memorialization of this neighboring arcade space led to a tunnel-like twisting of the interior in such a way that the floor, walls, and ceiling become wrapped into one another, creating a vortex of movement from front to back in which design elements flock like schools of fish moving through a turbulent fluid environment.
